I use painting, drawing, performance, and installation to open up spaces for reconsideration of 20th and 21st century coded systems of art consumption. These systems are founded on codes of capital, patriarchal and oppressive relations which are in turn grounded in presumptions of technological utopianism and power.
I am interested in the visual entry points to how technologies influence our lives as a way to ask: What the intended uses of it, how do we care and maintain these objects, and what happens when their intended use is reconfigured. I use visual motifs found in diagrams for learning, such as automobile and airplane model car kits, the aesthetics of 70s pulp science fiction, punk-hardcore aesthetics, and the mid-century brutalist architecture. I layer these references upon each other through detailed mark-making. I repeat patterns to mimic the stultification or paralysis through the constant and seemingly ceaseless replication of assembly-line technologies of production and consumption.
